Tentatively taking their first steps, these newly-born lambs are a new attraction at Snettisham Park Farm in west Norfolk.

But before they are introduced to visitors, they have to get used to each other.

Park manager Trevor Walters said: 'We have had 420 ewes lambing this year, which is about 100 more than last year.

'We brought forward the lambing by about two weeks, and we are increasing the size of our flock.

'We like to accommodate the ewes and the lambs inside. But as soon as the weather cheers up, in a couple of weeks' time – when they are about 14 days old –they will be going outside.

'They don't like the wet and windy weather, which is what it's been like, but the weather forecast is getting better.

'Two of the lambs were very friendly when the photographer was here. They are two of our orphan lambs.'

The farm has some added attractions this year, with pony trekking and horse riding being introduced from Easter.
